Hi lovely bloggers,  how about this for a WOW colour combination!!  
Here is the fabulous inspiration photo which Steph has provided for this fortnight's 
FYI challenge - so put on your sunglasses, and get out those inks and papers ! 
Don't forget - you have a fortnight to create your project, and you can interpret the picture in any way you wish.

If you pop over to FYI you will find all the challenge details, and some awesome inspiration from the talented Design Team .
My DT offering is a clean and simple design, and here it is ~

I just LOVE  this Memory Box "Madera Corner" die - cut twice from 
SU Pumpkin Pie cardstock.
Base card - Stampin' Up (possibly Lavender Lace - had it for ages)!
The diecuts were attached behind orange satin ribbon and a top layer of purple satin ribbon.
Sentiment and oval punch from Stampin' Up.
Corner rounder - X-cut.
And that's it - short and sweet!
Love to all ~
